In the first 10 verses, Paul lays out the thesis of the entire epistle. 1. He shows his care for the Galatians by: a. Blessing them b. Writing the letter at all 2. Admonishes the Galatians for turning from Him 3. Qualifies his authority, in Christ, to teach the true Gospel a. Proves his authority over the Galatians. Paul, as a servant of Christ (v.10), has grounds to be "astonished" at the Galatian church for chasing a false gospel. Paul qualifies himself in order to reassert his authority in teaching given by God. Essentially Paul is reassuring the Galatians that his words are from God and therefore to turn from Paul, the one that called them to the grace of Christ, is to turn from Christ himself.

Θαυμάζω ὅτι οὕτως ταχέως μετατίθεσθε ἀπὸ τοῦ καλέσαντος ὑμᾶς ἐν χάριτι [Χριστοῦ]

and are turning to a different gospel--
ὃ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλο,
not that there is another one,
